6 Months After Using More The Ordinary Skincare

I haven’t talked about The Ordinary in a couple of months (with the exception of favourites and empties post) so I thought now would be the perfect time to update you all on my continued experience since my last post. So far, I’ve been mostly impressed and it gives me joy that word has gotten around about this amazing brand. I’m almost sure that it needs no introduction now because it’s really taken the industry by storm. ‘Work until you no longer have to introduce yourself’, they say. That sums up The Ordinary’s situation; just that it may have happened much sooner than anticipated! They have done the unthinkable. Featured in this post: Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Buffet Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% Advanced Retinoid 2% Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% I will say though – the ONE product that I haven’t continued use with is the Vitamin C Suspension …

The Beauty Clean-Up #6 (empties) | HUGE Edition!

Overdue is largely an understatement right now but I’m glad I can actively throw away what’s been in my beauty junk box since the last time we spoke. [See: The Beauty Clean-up #5] I’ve been doing some major collecting to the point that my beauty junk box is well and truly overflowing. I need to throw these empty packets and bottles away! This is going to be a particularly long post so to (hopefully) make things easier, I’ll keep each product review as short as possible! + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent + Simple Micellar Cleansing Water – Simple Toning Cleanser = Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water + Bioderma Sébium H2O + The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + The Ordinary Niacinamide + Zinc 1% + The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% + The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% + The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% + Boots No7 Youthful Eye Serum + Clinique All About Eyes + Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief – Clinique Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser * + Eucerin Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF 50+ …

Another The Ordinary Skincare Haul + Future Products to Test!

Today, I’m going to show you my not-so-recent The Ordinary Skincare haul. I’ve actually only just started using some of the products two weeks ago so I can’t really give a first impressions (at least not for everything) but I know the brand is of interest to many people (it’s currently my most viewed post-series). It’s definitely not your average skincare brand, and though the prices speak drugstore it certainly doesn’t feel that way. The products are ground-breaking, scientific and should be used in a certain way so I’ll speak a little about that too. If anything, this post is of benefit to me as much as it is for you if you decide to be a future user. I’m still in the midst of figuring out many of the brand’s products! Featured in this post: Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% (repurchase) Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Buffet Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 (repurchase) Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil FYI, I purchased everything from Victoria Health but …

Follow-Up Review on The Ordinary Moisturisers

The hype is real. Part of my Instagram feed is filled with skincare-related posts (even those recommended to me) and I see so many of them talking about The Ordinary and/or showing The Ordinary within their skincare. (I don’t know why I act so surprised – it’s in my skincare routine too!) Just in case you need some more info to fill you in, I managed to find a post by Caroline Hirons that I had read a few months ago! If you missed my last two posts regarding the company and some of its products, you can catch up here and here. If you didn’t, thank you so much for having read it! As promised, here is the remaining chapter of that haul: The Ordinary moisturisers and how I got on with them. Featured in this post: The Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% IF YOU ARE USING THESE PRODUCTS/INTERESTED, PLEASE READ THIS SPECIAL NOTE: The Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is incompatible with both these products. It is recommended to …

Follow-up Review on The Ordinary Skincare

You may have caught up with my quite recent haul: The Ordinary Skincare which I talked about briefly here as a first impressions. Now that it’s been over a month since incorporating some of the products (4 out of 6)* into my routine, I feel that I have acquired a better opinion about them overall. Without a doubt, they have improved my skin but how? Let’s find out! The products featured in this post are:  Advanced Retinoid 2% Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% *I have not incorporated the Vitamin C moisturiser at all into my routine for reasons explained in my first impressions post. As for the Azelaic Acid Moisturiser – it has finally been dispatched after being out-of-stock since end of November. Chemical Exfoliation I use Advanced Retinoid 2% and Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% together, one after the other. This step is performed after I have cleansed and toned my skin, 2-3x a week. It has made the biggest difference to my skin and I cannot sing …
